PM Imran Khan hints at strict punishment to sex offenders

Karachi - Prime Minister Imran Khan has said we have to make such laws that could provide protection to women and children against harassment. The government is in the process of preparing a bill aimed to award strict punishment to sex offenders.

Addressing the parliament session on Wednesday, the PM said that a bill against sexual harassment will be tabled in the parliament soon.

Imran maintained that those involved in rape incidents do such crimes again and again. "The government will maintain record of those culprits who are involved in sexual harassment cases," he stated.

"Rape not only destroys a family but the entire household," he said.

Regarding the Finance Action Task Force (FATF) bills, the prime minister said that opposition used FATF for their own gains. "Opposition members do not care about Pakistan's interests. They only care how to save looted money."

He highlighted that the opposition presented several amendments in NAB and FATF-related bills just to protect their corrupt practices. "Opposition thought they could blackmail the government over FATF bills but we took stand and stood by our principles."
